Very impressed with the addition of lanes. WL10 was billed as a tool for sound designers, but my sound designer and I found that only minimally true for final sfx mastering, for actual design of a sound fx we have to use Nuendo, which is clumsy for the purpose (the Mixdown dialog takes a fair bit of wrangling).
Step 1: Trying to create a sound fx in WL11. I’m grabbing various clips and stacking them up in lanes on a track. Looks very clean and intuitive.
First question - why only 8 lanes/track? That might be just enough, I have to ask my engineer but he might use more than that on occasion. I suppose he could use another track for more stacks which then get summed together. The inserts will be duplicated or whatever however.
Step 2: I created some junk example sfx, OK now I need variations. In Nuendo most of the time we just use the Randomizer vst for this, but I’m not finding it in the list. In Nuendo it’s in the “Other” category.
Hm, going to the plugin in preferences it’s not blocked. I’m not sure where Nuendo puts it, but noticing that both Nuendo and Wavlab have a “XYZ Plug-in Set. vst3” which seems to contain other plugins (?), I include
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Nuendo 11\VST3\Nuendo Plug-in Set.vst3\Contents\x86_64-win
But still not found. Can the Nuendo plugins be used with Wavelab?
